What to consider when buying Akash Network

The Akash Network is poised to provide a breakthrough service – decentralized cloud resources to power a DeFi world. Like blockchain and cryptocurrency technology in general, Akash is in its early days. Before purchasing AKT, consider the following:
  • Stiff competition. The Akash Network was developed in part as a response to the centralized nature of today's cloud computing, which is largely controlled by large companies such as Amazon and Microsoft. Akash is trying to pioneer a new, decentralized model for delivering cloud computing resources, but it faces stiff competition from the established industry leaders.
  • Applications. While the competition is stiff, the possibilities are nearly endless. Entire sectors of the tech industry, such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies, are powered by and hosted on the cloud. Those sectors are likely to experience continued growth for the foreseeable future, and Akash offers the chance to be part of a new model for those industries. But like all new models, it's impossible to tell exactly where the market will go, and if Akash will be able to establish itself as a major player in the cloud computing world.
  • Profit model. Akash plans to return some of the money spent on network services to investors. Holders of AKT will potentially be able to profit both from holding and staking AKT. This model hinges upon widespread adoption of the Akash network in order to be profitable.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Akash Network, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of AKT is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision. Finder, or the author, may have holdings in the Akash Network or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
